10 Reasons to Get Passionate About Purple

Prince may have monopolized purple in the '80s, but we're happy to report its comeback for this millenium. Think of it as the exotic lovechild of classic red and blue — a warm-meets-cool tone that plays well on both sides of the color spectrum. Be it bold jewel tones or ladylike lavenders that tickle your fancy, these pieces make a convincing case for purple accents.

  • Overdyed Terai Chair ($198): Folding chairs get a style upgrade with fabric that looks like it could have been cut from vintage kantha quilts.
  • Sloop Dec Pillow ($125): The block-printed fabric on this pillow creates a slightly faded pattern that just gets better with time.
  • Button-Tufted Ottoman ($330): We'd pair this feminine ottoman with a charcoal-gray palette for a surprisingly sophisticated take on lavender.
  • Lamp Finial ($55): Give lamps a bespoke edge by adding this jewel-like finial.
  • Plum Herringbone Throw ($250): This graphic pattern catches the eye but can easily be mixed with other patterns, thanks to its perfect scale.
  • Hobnail Pitcher ($155): You'll look forward to dishwashing duties just to touch the bubble-like surface on this amethyst pitcher.
  • Purple Pouf Ottoman ($200): This Moroccan staple works equally well as a footrest, seating, or a small table (with a tray).
  • Suzani and Diamond Ikat Napkins ($12 each): Set these on your table, and you'll never go back to paper again.
  • Goblets ($82 for six): Whether you're sipping sangria or water, these glasses might tempt you to put your pinky up.
  • Balboa Rug ($31-$207): There's nothing lowbrow about this colorful rag rug.

As you know, I avoid purple almost as much as Marie from Breaking Bad embraces it. But nice work: I love those Ikat and Suzani napkins.
